Law firm Lexington & Newhouse has sued the Trump Administration over the federal government’s enforcement of a provision of the Uniform Commercial Code that says semen must be kept in a sealed container when transporting or storing it.
A hearing is scheduled for March 3.
The case is one of a number that has arisen from the Trump Presidency.
Lexington is a law firm specializing in contracts and tort law, and its lawyer, Paul Pfeiffer, has represented numerous clients in recent years, including President Donald Trump’s former personal attorney, Michael Cohen.
But he says he has never been in a situation where the Trump Adminstration had to enforce such a provision.
“This was the first time that I had to go to court over it,” Pfeffer said.
“I have a lawyer who has been involved in several cases where this law of sex has been violated.
He and I are both lawyers and we are both familiar with the law of sperm and semen.
So it was not something that we were thinking of.”
Lexington filed the lawsuit in January.
Pfeffer, who is not a lawyer by trade, said that he had received an email from a Lexington attorney in April advising him that the Trump team was aware of the law, which he said he had not read.
“It was quite unusual to hear that the administration was looking at it, given that this was just one of the thousands of lawsuits that I have been involved with,” Pffer told me.
He said that it is his belief that the Justice Department will not enforce the law in the future.
The Department of Justice did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
Pffffer is not the only lawyer who is skeptical about the administration’s interest in enforcing the law.
As a matter of fact, the Trump Team has said that there is no intention to enforce the Uniform Code of Military Justice.
But Pfeeeff and other lawyers say that they have been inundated with calls and emails from people concerned about the Trump adminstration’s enforcement.
PFEFFER said that the fact that they are facing legal action from a law company and the Trump’s lawyers suggests that the Administration may be attempting to make a political play by making the case that the law is not enforceable.
“We do believe that the government has been actively looking to undermine the legitimacy of the Trump campaign,” PFEIFFER said.
